    Re: OFFICIAL RAMS vs VIKES POSTGAME THREAD

    Not trying to be negative one bit.. Super stoked we are 5-0

    But honestly we have played the Rams.. Browns.. Packers.. Etc

    We have alot of work to actually be a legit SB contender

    Otherwise it's a first round exit or lucky win in the playoffs

    Zero pass rush

    No run blocking

    Pass blocking is improving

    Run stopping is even slacking a bit this year, still good but not as stout as usual

    We need to shore things up in the trenches alot

    Being at 4-0 was having us at 83% going into the playoffs.

    So anyone who knows how fat chance there is that we go into the playoffs now when we are 5-0? Any stats nerds out there?!

    I second that.
    Vikings are going to make tha playoffs. We could make the playoffs without Favre or Adrian Peterson, but not without both of 'em, IMO.

    I agree that the schedule has been kind, but the two tests we've had to date (Puckers & 49ers) we've won both.

    By no means the finished article and i wouldnt expect anyone to be getting carried away but anyone can see we are getting there. Rice looks like he is now a legitimate receiver, Shiancoe proving to be one of the safest pair of hands at the TE spot (never thought id be saying that when he first showed up! lol).

    The next run of games will be key and show where we are at.

    I'm happy with a comortable win where we never really got out of first gear

    Good team beat bad teams. That is why we are 5-0 and the rest of those teams are not.

    Ravens will be a true test. They are going to be hella mad after losing the game this week. Lewis vs AP should be fun. Favre vs Reed should be great. Lets see what we got.
    We're bringing purple back.

    The only thing I'm a little concerned about is the run blocking. AD hasn't been able to turn the corner the past few games, mainly because of the defenses continuing to put 8 in the box, and shooting the gaps. Thank God for Favre keeping them honest. Our O line is not pushing the line of scrimmage, and looks like a little confusion at times over responsibilities. Pass blocking has been very good.

    I love our use of the screen pass, even TJack pulled off a beauty.

    It's great to win 38-10, and still consider it a non-dominating performance. Love that we're 5-0, and like Marr said we're able to keep many of our guys fresh with the rotations. Doesn't bother me that AD only has 99 rushes in 5 games. We're winning, that's what counts most.

    The good:
    Farve (minus the dumb int)
    Rice (most improved player this year, maybe because we have a real QB)
    The OLINE pass protecting
    Special teams played well.
    Luck. We got lucky with all the TOs the Rams gave us.

    The Bad:
    We cant cover. Our LBs are just horrible at covering. TEs own us. Anything up the middel ownz us.
    We havent played a good team all year other then maybe the pack. Its going to get alot harder.
